This is an idea I had for next week's phonics skill--short o! I put a variety of short o words onto clip art lollipops and placed them in a Tootsie Roll Pop bag. The kids will work in pairs at word work station to sort the words, then write the words onto a lollipop sorting page! Sweet...practice! Now that we're getting closer to Halloween, I thought it could be fun to do some themes with candy--I have a few ideas for candy addition, but would love some other ideas from my awesome teacher friends out there!
